Bernadette grew up not far from the outdoor lifestyle in Berkeley, CA. After many trips to Tahoe in the winter for skiing and hiking and rafting trips in the Sierras during the summer, Bernadette was motivated to extend this lifestyle past her weekend warrior trips to a year round life.
In 2015, Bernadette left the city life behind when she moved to Queenstown, NZ where she has been living the last two years. Although skiing has been her go-to outdoor sport and passion, an opportunity to capture the same spirit of the industry arose when she was on a rafting trip in New Zealand and met a member of Wet Planet’s family on the Shotover River. Knowing that the Gorge would be the next adventure for her, she decided to go for the opportunity to join the Wet Planet family.
As a newbie to the Gorge area, Bernadette is excited to meet everyone in her new home and is looking forward to all the new spots to explore with new friends! Please pass on any new tips to welcome her to the area.
